Help!
eagle tree tracker

Been using the eagle tracker with great results. Only problem is that every once in awhile the P&T servo's will stop working and antenna will drop, then after about 10 sec they will power back on and continue tracking. I am using Hitec servo 5955TG for tilt and a 7955TG for pan, I know they are overkill but they were laying around.

Does anyone have this problem or do they have a solution?

Steve

Hello,

The tracker is likely overloading the Eagle Eyes. Be sure your tracker is balanced. You can also power the servos from a separate BEC etc to provide more current. If you can't get it sorted please open a support ticket on our website.

Regards, John

an other thing that will cause this, is if you set your tracker end points beyond the range of motion of the servo. It causes the servo to push beyond its' ability, and creates a situation where it draws high amps. then as with the example that John gave, it has a thermal "time out".
